1. Hello Jeneral

How's things? Good to see you back!

Seen this story about Andrew Mitchell?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/conservative/9172731/Andrew-Mitchell-held-shares-in-company-which-avoided-millions-in-stamp-duty.html

Andrew Mitchell, the International Development Secretary, invested funds in a network of privately owned firms which is now at the centre of a tax avoidance case.

He paid money into DV3 Ltd, a subsidiary of which used a legal loophole in 2006 to avoid paying £2.6 million in stamp duty on the purchase of a commercial property in London, The Times reported.

Although the transaction was legal, HM Revenue and Customs has described it as “aggressive tax avoidance” – a practice Chancellor George Osborne has pledged to clamp down on.

Only last week in his Budget statement, Mr Osborne said: “I regard tax avoidance and, indeed, aggressive tax avoidance as incredibly repugnant.”
